New Yorker claims ownership of Nazi-looted artwork
11:58, 07 March 2014, 688

AKIPRESS.COM - Germany-Art-Found An elderly New Yorker has joined the legal fray over the ownership of artwork found in a Munich apartment that was allegedly looted by the Nazis during World War II, The Times of Israel reported.

In a complaint filed on March 5 in U.S. district court in Washington, David Toren asks the German Government to immediately return an oil painting he claims belonged to a great-uncle who died in 1942.

Toren, 88, who emigrated to the United States in 1956, said “Two Riders on the Beach” by Max Liebermann was among the more than 1,400 artworks uncovered in the Munich apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt in a February 2012 police raid.

In his complaint, Toren asserts he is the lawful heir of art stolen by the Nazis from his great-uncle David Friedmann, an industrialist and avid art collector.
